Owned and operated by a local family, Salla offers a variety of winter cottage accommodation nestled in the woods and all within walking distance of the various amenities within this small village.

The beauty of Salla is that everything is within easy reach, so for those looking to combine fantastic winter activities, incredible wilderness, traditional wooden winter cottages and even some downhill skiing, this is the place to be.

The winter cottages are traditionally designed, providing a warm and cosy base for your stay and the nearby restaurant and pub are perfect for fuelling up for your adventures or relaxing in the evening.


  • Breakfast and dinner will be served in the Kiela Restaurant, which focuses on local cuisine including reindeer, salmon, whitefish and the much-talked-about speciality, Lapp cheese (or squeaky cheese!)
  • Relax in the Papana Pupi pub, which is next to the Kiela Restaurant and is the place where most locals and guests mingle on an evening over pool and drinks. Adorned with sports memorabilia, if you take them a football (or even better, ice hockey) shirt or scarf to add to their collection, you will have made friends for life
  • Make use of the nearby ski hill and cruise down the pistes, or take your first turns with the expert ski school only a few minutes away from your winter cottage

Salla - Arctic Nights and Northern Lights

Get an expert opinion

The Aurora Zone was born out of our love of all things wintery. We were already regular visitors to the likes of Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland thanks to a fascination with winter activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling and the Scandinavian way of life. Many of our visits coincided with sightings of the Northern Lights and The Aurora Zone was born from a desire to share Mother Nature’s greatest wonder with as many people as possible. We have all been held in the Aurora’s thrall and our mission is to do our very best to ensure that our clients can experience that magical moment on their Northern Lights holiday.
